Chocolate Praline Bundt Cake is a decadent bundt cake recipe smothered with chocolate ganache. A surprise is baked into this cake, giving it the praline flavor, and it all starts with a cake mix!

This rich and tender chocolate cake has a container of coconut pecan frosting baked into it, giving it a moist, buttery flavor.

Chocolate Praline Bundt Cake starts with a cake mix. I love cake mix. It makes baking quick and easy. The fact is, aside from over-baking or under-baking, you can’t go wrong with a cake mix. You can make a cake per the package directions or change up the liquid, oil, and add-ins and make a completely different cake.

You can transform a cake from a mix into a gourmet creation, as I’ve done with this Chocolate Praline Bundt Cake. I wanted to make a ‘fancier’ version of my son’s favorite cake, the Chocolate Coca-Cola Cake, for his birthday celebration. I picked up Pillsbury cake mix and frosting for a quicker, albeit easier, version of that chocolate cake.

This cake is beautiful, you have to admit. It’s very impressive. It’s easy to make since it starts with cake mix and premade frosting! To make a good thing, better serve a big slice with a giant scoop of Black Forest Ice Cream.

How do you make this cake?

It’s simple.

  1. In the bowl of your electric mixer, add the cake mix, oil, milk, and eggs.
  2. Mix these ingredients for two minutes.
  3. Next, add the store-bought frosting.
  4. Stir it in my hand or mix it on low until the frosting is incorporated into the mix.
  5. Pour the batter into your greased bundt pan.
  6. Finally, bake in a 350° oven for 45 to 50 minutes.

I made a simple chocolate icing and garnished it with pecans and coconut. You may choose to use another frosting or leave it plain. I’ve made these cakes with cake mix. Be sure to check them out.

  • 15.25 ounce box Chocolate Cake Mix I used this brand
  • 15 ounce package Coconut-Pecan Frosting I used this
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 large eggs beaten


  • 1/4 cup butter salted or unsalted, I use this
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder I use this brand
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract I use this brand
  • 3 and ½ cup confectioners sugar sifted
  • Garnish: 1/3 cup chopped pecans 1/4 cup coconut flakes



  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Grease and flour a 10-cup bundt pan. You can grease and flour, use non-stick spray, or I absolutely love this cake release product from Wilton!
  • Combine cake mix, oil, eggs, and milk. Beat well.
  • Add frosting and stir until combined.
  • Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean or with dry crumbs.
  • Cool 15 minutes in the pan before inverting to a serving platter to cool completely.
  • Frost cool cake with chocolate frosting.


  • Sift sugar.
  • Heat butter in a small pan on medium heat, do not let the butter get brown.
  • When butter is melted, whisk in cocoa, milk, and vanilla. Add sugar 1/2 cup at a time, whisking after each addition.
  • Remove from heat, after the sugar has been added.
  • Whisk until smooth.
  • Immediately pour over cake.
  • If icing is too thin, add additional sifted sugar 1/4 cup at a time until desired thickness or sit it in the refrigerator a few minutes. Take it out and whisk it until creamy again.
  • Frosting will thicken as it cools, but it’ll be harder to spread.

  1. I have bookmarked all most all of your pound cake recipes. Can not wait to start baking. Have you ever heard of a Cold Oven pound cake? My husband’s Mom made them all the time, also a 7Up pound cake. We all love them both.
